Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Volvo XC90 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 192008


  • miles


I own a 2006 Volvo XC90 and I am concerned that the rear wheel bearing may be a manufacturers defect. I recently took my vehicle into a Volvo dealer (July 2008 while still covered under warranty) as I felt that it wasn't running properly and it was making weird noises they could not find the problem (I made the dealership provide me with a car fax report as I bought the vehicle as a demo). Just last week, 4,000 miles after the warranty expired the noises got worse and I discovered both rear wheel bearings were bad along with both rear tie rods. I contacted Corp. Volvo and they agreed to cover a little over 50% of the entire repairs. I am concerned because while I was researching over the internet I discovered that there are several people with the same car that have experienced the same problem. I even received confirmation from the dealership that my specific vehicle is known for this problem. I found on your website that the tie rod assembly was a recall for my vehicle (06V-155). If Volvo replaced this part as recall on my vehicle why would they go bad again in such a short time frame" would a defective tie rod cause wear and tear on the wheel bearings? I am concerned this is going to happen to other consumers or even worse this defect may cause an accident" I did not feel that I should be held responsible for any of the repairs and I hope that other consumers in my position would not have to go through this as it does appear to be a known and common problem. Please help research this problem.
